I tested KMS support for R600 for my Mobility Radeon HD 3650. I followed the
steps described in http://wiki.x.org/wiki/radeonBuildHowTo in order to install
the most recent software stack. I am using kernel version with the
drm-next branch merged, libdrm 2.4.13 and the most recent driver GIT master of
xf86-video-ati (last commit 8404c37b2ff95aba31db97676f106ec2f30fda7f).

The system boots up, text console looks stable, and KDM login screen shows up
correctly. However, after login to KDE 4.3.1, the screen freezes shortly after
a time period of about 15-20 seconds. Sometimes the screen becomes white and
then my laptop reboots.

In the case when the screen only freezes, I can still move mouse cursor, and
shut down the machine cleanly, but I cannot move any window, and switch to the
text console.

I tried that with DRI and EXA off in the xorg.conf, but the problem does not

My software stack is:
 libdrm 2.4.13,
 mesa 7.5.1 (but tested the master branch of git repository 7.7-devel),
 master branch of xf86-video-ati.
 dri2proto 2.1

My hardware is laptop ASUS M50SA with 4GB system memory, and graphics 1GB
Mobility Radeon HD 3650.

I'll attach Xorg.0.log, dmesg, xorg.conf, and lspci -a output.
